To me, a Builder of Jewish education is someone who builds and cultivates relationships between our young Jews and their Judaism and Jewish community. I feel like it’s my job to show them that those relationships matter and give them to tools to thrive in those relationships.

Support BJE and Build Jewish Education in Los Angeles

May 04, 2016

Dear BJE Builder,

There is only one organization in Los Angeles wholly committed to Jewish education in its many expressions - BJE: Builders of Jewish Education. Every day, BJE is part of building LA's vibrant Jewish community.

BJE can't do this without your help. It takes a community to educate our children; we hope you will consider supporting the work of BJE by becoming a Builder of Jewish education.

Dignifying Diversity and Embracing

Mar 18, 2016

By Dr. Gil Graff

With Pesach on the near horizon, thoughts of the haggadah and its call to include, hear and relate to multiple voices take on heightened consciousness.  The haggadah opens the Passover narrative with an invitation to all who are in need, whether materially or in spirit, to join the seder experience.   Shortly thereafter, we expressly recognize (at least) four different attitudes among children with regard to the seder proceedings.   While calling for differentiated responses, each child is to be included in the broader conversation.
